Treasures from Sacred Hill: Song-Yuan Period Archaeological Discoveries from Kai Tak

Following the closure of Kai Tak Airport in 1998, the planning work for the Kai Tak Development Area has created opportunities for archaeological studies around Kowloon Bay. The archaeological work conducted in the environs of the former Sacred Hill at Kowloon Bay has unearthed an abundance of cultural remains of the Song-Yuan period, including a huge amount of ceramics produced by various kilns in Zhejiang, Fujian and Jiangxi. Many of the ceramics unearthed were widely exported and can also be found in shipwrecks along the Song-Yuan period Maritime Ceramics Route, and in places such as the Philippines. Featuring the archaeological findings made in recent years in the Kai Tak area, in particular ceramics of the Song-Yuan period, this exhibition exemplifies Hong Kong’s maritime trade connections.
